Look and feel

At 2.6 inches, the N85's OLED screen is 0.2 inches smaller than the N96, but the phone still displays up to 16 million colours with a resolution of 240x320 pixels.


Ease of use

Slide it one way to reveal the standard alphanumeric keypad and slide the other direction to unveil four media control keys.



The N85 is right up there with the best when it comes to mobile navigation.



Both recording and playing back video was seamless, with the OLED screen capable of displaying some marvellous imagery.

The battery life is very good.
